temperatures an there's less stable ice to work with. jacob peklo from our local 5 affiliate-- explains why it's probably best to avoid it for the rest of the season. "(natural sound of matt bruner speaking:) "it's probably 10, 12 feet along the shoreline." matt bruner has been a conservation officer with the iowa department of natural resources for a decade now. (natural sound of matt:) "the water's clearly melted here along the shoreline." one of his responsibilities during the winter months is to monitor the waters, to help people determine whether it's safe to go ice fishing. matt bruner, iowa dnr conservation officer:r:the first clueuehould be the melting ararnd the shorelines. if you're havi trouble accessing the ice, you should probably stay off it." bruner says the ice is still thick, but not nearly as strong as it was earlier this winter. (natural sound of matt:) "it's not strong ice, and of course it can't be trusted for holding up the weight of us or anything else." and the ice isn't even thin near the boat ramp, it's disappearing. (natural sound of water splashing) now, the lake is thawing, and the water is starting to flow like it did just a few months ago. most are heeding bruner's advice to stay away, but one ice shack in the middlelef big creek lake didn't get that memo in time. matt bruner, iowa dnr conservation officer: "with the weight of that ice

there and then the heat that it retained, it melted its way through the ice, with strong ice surrounding it." although there aren't many ice anglers to be found, grand view sophomore zach martin took advantage of this mild weekend, with a trip to the shoreline. zach martin, grand view sophomore: "pretty much wanted dorm room for a reel rotating) the opportunity to head outside was too good to pass up. zach martin grand ew sophomore: "the temperatures are usually more moderate. there's not as much ice on of all year round there." the only one who on fishing, he's the only one dedicated to spend an afternoon the lake. zach martin, grand view sophomore: "there was somebody, but they weren't as strong hearted. " jess so keeping that ice shack on the water is the equivalent of littering in terms of a fine from the d-n-r, but the disposal fee could bring the costs up much also-- if you're get some ice fishing in before the year is done, bruner suggests going north to places like clear lake or okoboji. coming up in hosted missouri in
